Double mini-betay lattice in TPS

The baseline lattice of TPS storage ring consists of 24 double bend achromat (DBA) cells, 18 short straight sections (7m) and 6 long straight sections (12m). Based on the baseline lattice, three long straight sections are symmetrically configured as double mini-betay lattice in which three sets of quadrupole triplet are installed in the middles of three long straight sections respectively to accommodate two undulators as shown in Fig. 1.
The current lattice of user operation is a double mini-betay lattice with 3 superperiods, different from the baseline lattice used during the TPS commissioning. Figure 2 shows the beam optics functions for the TPS double mini-betay lattice of one superperiod.
